Transforming Extra to Investments in Equity

Solidarity is not an act of charity, but mutual aid between forces fighting for the same objective.

-Samora Machel

The Transforming Extra to Investments in Equity Campaign is an effort to address disparity and inequity in Santa Fe and build a solidarity economy. We ask you to join us in an act of interdependence, towards meeting the basic needs of every member of our community by taking action with us in August and/or contributing to our summer fund to redistribute tax rebates and personal means. Scroll down to take action with us at City Council next week. 

Our campaign encourages as many people as possible to redistribute all of, or part of, their tax rebates or personal means to their neighbors who did not receive a rebate or are in need of assistance. Earlier this summer, Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham announced that the state would be sending out tax rebates to 2021 New Mexico taxpayers in the amount of $500 for single filers and $1,000 for couples filing jointly. These rebates started going out in June. Contribute to the campaign and help us redistribute resources to individuals and families in Santa Fe!

Hundreds of community members gathered to support High-End Excise Tax for Affordable Housing on August 23, 2023. Dozens lined up to speak on the ordinance as the line reached out the door of the ballroom where city councilors and Mayor Alan Webber were hearing public comments from about 60 concerned residents that discussed the city's severe housing shortage, especially for middle-class and low-income residents.

 

Earth Care members & allies also passionately voiced their support, emphasizing that the current housing market is unaffordable for most, leading many to leave the city. They highlighted the need for affordable housing for young individuals and long-time Santa Feans struggling to find affordable homes.

Councilors Renee Villarreal and Jamie Cassutt introduced the ordinance, which will be voted on during the 2023 November Election. This is seen as the first of many measures to combat Santa Fe's affordable housing crisis.

 

The measure will now move to the November ballot where the community will have the opportunity to vote to support affordable housing.

WE MUST CONTINUE TO FIGHT AND PUT THE PRESSURE TO ACHIEVE TRANSFORMATION.

 

VOTE TO SUPPORT AFFORDABLE HOUSING AT THE BALLOT BOX THIS NOVEMBER! 

 

take Action! One step closer to equity!
